It was back to school as well in the first week of September for Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronauts Jeremy Hansen and Jenni Gibbons, along with NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Raja Chari. Jeremy and Christina are scheduled to fly on Artemis II, the first crewed mission to the Moon in over 50 years. The group spent most of the week exploring Kamestastin, a remote meteorite impact crater in northern Labrador, near the Quebec border, for planetary science and lunar geology training.
Animation of the trajectory of the Artemis II mission, the first crewed mission to the Moon since 1972. After a launch atop the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Orion and its crew perform a rendezvous and proximity operations demonstration before travelling to the Moon, doing a flyby, and finally returning to Earth with a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean. Canadian Space Agency astronaut Jeremy Hansen is the first Canadian to ever participate in a lunar mission as part of Artemis II.
CSA astronaut Jeremy Hansen brings us into his extraordinary daily routine. He shows us what a typical day looks like for an astronaut who is training for the Artemis II mission to the Moon. From his healthy breakfast to his flight training exercises, he shares his secret to keeping calm and getting rid of the stress.
